Spot Checking

Spot checking lets you create still image or movie clip exports of individual or groups of frames from data-merged compositions, quickly generating image and movie previews to help you with quality control of batch output. Exported assets rendered during this process are known as spot checks.

Use composition timeline markers to specify which frames you want Templater to export when it creates spot checks, otherwise Templater samples an evenly distributed number of frames across the target composition's duration.

Spot checks are useful for quickly evaluating and sharing how Templater merges data into various composition layers at specific frames. You can choose the file format of the rendered spot check outputs and pass the absolute path of any spot check to a script that is registered to a supported Templater event.

NOTE  Spot checking requires Templater 3.0 or newer. It is supported in Pro or Bot editions only.
